Surgery coming...

You must be wondering what I am talking about.   I finally met the specialist for my foot after more than a year and a half of waiting.  She is the best in town so I guess I'm in good hands...


You see bunions run in the family...  both sides.    I got my left foot operated on when I was 18 years old.   This time it is for the right foot.


Got my x-rays done two weeks ago...  and I had to picked them up before going to see the specialist.


Wanna see?



Wish I could have taken a picture of the procedure she will do...  She wrote on the x-rays with a white pencil while she was explaining.   It would have been cool to show you...  Anyhow, the side part of the bone will be cut, the part above it will be moved and a small part of the bone replaced with what she removed, also the big toe will be broken and move to the proper position.  


Date of the surgery:  November 26th, 2008 thanks to a cancellation.   If it wouldn't have been because of the cancellation, I would have had to wait another year...  In the meantime, I pray the pain won't be too bad...  Since I saw her, my foot hurt on and off.  


Rob even asked me to ask my mom to come over for two weeks... 


NOTE:  BTW the title of my surgery is:  Right Forefoot Reconstruction and Bone Graft...  Boy all this to say - remove a bunion and reposition the toe...

  1. I'm sorry you have to wait so long for the surgery. Hope you're not in too much pain until that time.
